[Bottle] Pours reddish-brown with almost no head. Aroma is awesome. Leathery, acetic acid, berry, subtle vanilla; lots of barrel in general, but in all the right ways. Taste is outstanding too. Oak again, fairly tart, good amount of fruit that is well integrated--would have probably have pegged this as raspberry or blackberry, some alcohol. Pretty dry, long finish that is great--leathery. Overall, this is just an excellent beer. I wish I had bought more of this while I was out in California.

Bottle from Michael Burd -- cheers, buddy! Tart, dark, and complex, with distinct oak and fruit flavor, balanced by a sizable sourness. This is the kind of beer that wine country does best.

Pours a slightly cabonated deep reddish brown. Nice oak wine aroma. Taste is nice and tart, but smooth and sweet at the same time. Can really pick up on the oak.

Review from notes. Mahogany color with beige head. Aroma is really fruit forward with the currants making me think of blackcurrant wine. Also some caramel and wood notes. Taste is sweet with fruits and caramel notes at first but gets intensely sour and acidic on the finish and aftertaste. You can get a bit of warming alcohol too. Really nice fruit profile and complex taste.

This is the best sour I’ve ever had. I joked that it tasted more like red wine than beer after each sip, but it really does combine the best of both very effectively. It’s sweet and it’s sour and it’s easy to smell all the complex goings-on from the currants fermenting in the oak barrels. I’d drink this again and again.

From a 375 ml bottle into a Leffe glass. Batch "004x4." Pours brown with minimal head and lace. Aroma of fermented cherries and oak. Significant carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of tart apricot, cherries, apple, plums, currant, and slight malt. Overall mouth puckering tart with a fruity complexity.

Un grand merci à Yan pour le partage! Une belle sour rouge à l’américaine au collet monté et au look défiant. D’importantes arômes de vin rouge émanent de mon verre. Ça sent le vieux baril oublié dans une grange de campagne à la fonte des neiges. Oui ça sent vraiment ça! À ce vieux bois presque pourri s’ajoute un vinaigre important qui flirt doucement avec l’alcool dont on sent à peine les 10 degrés. Une belle rondeur en bouche pour une bière aigre, sans doute attribuable au Cabernet Sauvignon sans lequel la bière aurait été plutôt difficile à boire. Très réussie!

Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a clear orange-amber with a small off-white head. Cab-forward nose with lots of dark fruit: cassis, plum and juicy red grapes with some oak and light vanilla as it warms. Again the nose is very vinous with good tart character. Average carbonation with a medium body. Fruit forward on the palate with some light oak. Dry finish with good sourness. Awesomeness.
